New Rozen Maiden Anime's 2nd Promo Streamed
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The official website for the Rozen Maiden anime began streaming the second promotional video for the 2013 Rozen Maiden anime on Wednesday. Miyuki Sawashiro (Galaxy Angel, Durarara!!) narrates the promo as Shinku, who describes an alternate world in which Jun did not choose to twist the turner on her back. Once he chose not to, he never met to meet Shinku or any of the other dolls, and became a normal college student. However, even though avoided fate once, he is destined to meet the dolls. The anime's “Watashi no Bara wo Haminasai” (Eat My Roses) opening theme song plays in the video.
Peach-Pit launched the original manga in Gentosha's Monthly Comic Birz magazine in 2002 before switching to Young Jump in 2008. It inspired two 12-episode television anime adaptations (Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden - Träumend), the two-episode prequel Rozen Maiden: Ouvertüre in 2006, and the short special Rozen Maiden: Detective Kun-Kun.
Geneon Entertainment licensed the original series and Rozen Maiden - Träumend for release in North America in 2007. FUNimation Entertainment then signed a deal with Geneon Entertainment in 2008 to distribute both Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden - Träumend in 2008. Sentai Filmworks picked up and released Rozen Maiden, Rozen Maiden - Träumend, and Rozen Maiden: Ouvertüre in 2011.
The anime will premiere in Japan on July 4.
